Smith Cosmetics is a brush company based in Canada that makes high quality brushes. They make some of my absolute favorite brushes that I can’t live without, like the #112 and #230. Smith Cosmetics sent me their new Sculpting Series and I’m very impressed with the quality and design. This collection consists of 5 brushes designed for creating shade and light on the face. With any brush, you can use them for whatever you want, no matter what they’re designed for.
First up is the #103 Filbert Face Brush - This is my most favorite brush out of the whole collection. You can use this brush for applying setting powders in specific areas, applying highlighter, or blush. I see myself using this mostly for setting powder and highlighter.
#104 Fan Brush (aka the Mohawk) - This brush is made of pure goat hair. I love using natural bristle brushes for applying powder products. It’s angled shape makes it perfect for applying a really soft contour or a hint of blush.
#151 Paddle Brush - The #151 is a duo fiber brush with goat and synthetic bristles. This brush would be great for creating a strong contour, or a quick and sheer foundation application.
#154 Quill Face Brush - This brush is the perfect size and shape for applying bronzer, blush, or powder. I’d even use this on the body.
#157 Wedge Brush - The #157 is a densely packed brush with an angle. It has a square ferrule and an angled flat top. This brush has synthetic and natural bristles, making it ideal for creams, liquids, and powders. I think this is the most unique out of the collection. I got to use this on a client last week and loved how quickly I was able to apply foundation.
Here’s a quick comparison to existing Smith Cosmetics face brushes. I absolutely love the #112, but I definitely have new favorites from this collection. Overall I think the brushes are excellent. They are currently available on the Smith Cosmetics website for purchase. Don’t forget to apply for the pro discount!
